Wink will work with 60 compatible products from 15 partner companies out of the box, including Philips Hue bulbs, Honeywell smart thermostats, Dropcam Pro,
and Quirky’s own Aros window air-conditioner. Some of the gadgets around your house, like the Hue bulbs and Dropcam Pro, are Wink-ready without the hub,
while others, like GE’s high tech wall ovens and Bali blinds, require the hub to pair with the app.
If you buy two Wink-connected products from Home Depot, you can get the hub for as little as 99 cents through Labor Day. A Wink rep told me that setting up
the hub and getting all of your devices on board is a piece of cake, even for those of us who aren’t IT professionals.
